Week 11 Reflections:
Train Up a Child


The Proverbs 31 woman is blessed by her children:

Her children rise up and call her blessed
Proverbs 31:28a

If you’re in the stage of the littles like me, you’re probably laughing.

If you have teenagers, you might be laughing even harder.

Call me blessed? Seriously? Have you met my kids?

Ok. So, it’s not likely that my toddler is going to run up to be and tell me that I’m the greatest mom in the world multiple times each day. It’s not likely that my 5 year old is going to tell me thank you for putting him in time out. But over the long haul, I pray that I’m raising them to follow God so that when they are adults, they will look back and see what I’ve tried to do. Then I pray that they will call me blessed.

    Hi Amanda. I think there’s more to the Proverbs 31 woman than people initially realize when just reading the passage. I’ve incidentally been reading a new book by Dr. Tony Evans and his daughter, Chrystal Evans Hurst, called “Kingdom Woman” that has really given me new insights. Right off the bat they talk about the Proverbs 31 woman being the hallmark of kingdom women, “But the Proverbs 31 woman is not the model of a perfect woman. Neither is a kingdom woman called to perfection. Women, you can be a Proverbs 31 woman and more – but that doesn’t mean you do it all at the same time.” They tlk about life flowing through seasons and about getting help, not trying to do it all. It’s really eye-opening. If you’re interested in Dr. Evans’ book, they have information and free devotional downloads at I hope it blesses you as it has blessed me.
